Lysergic acid is a drug which has been shown to have no proven medical benefit. Medical toxicologists teach us that flashbacks from the drug can occur up to 15 years after the drug was last ingested. Drugs like this will alter the brain's function and can decrease serotonin response. It will cause delusions and is very psycho-active. It is illegal in the us and they only real danger is to self.
